La Maison Plisson
Cool: the most stylish food supplierof Paris (a concept revived by the one and only Delphine Plisson) is keeping both its shops open. While you can of course shop at the heart of these addresses with potential delivery service, the must is its e-shop www.lamaisonplisson.com—a haven for foodies.
Here they have everything, from prime ribs of beef to a crispy baguette, including Bordier butter, steaks, organic eggs, a Mont d'Or, bakers’ madeleines, a terrific merguez, super spreads, granolas, fresh coffee from Caron, squeezable oranges and an ultra fresh salad to be enjoyed with their organic champagne. In short: life.
